How to participate in the liveblog chat:

Option 1: Whenever you watch the episode, comment on this post as you watch with whatever responses you feel like posting!

Option 2: Go to Enter a nickname, then for the Channels field enter ##rabbitcube, and finally fill in the Captcha and hit Connect! We’ll be watching the episode and commenting there starting at 2:00 p.m. EST.

Afterwards, I’ll post the chat log here!

…Or technical difficulties could prevent me from chatting. Possibly everyone, I have no idea–it certainly LOOKS like the chat server is down, but it could be an issue on my end nonetheless. Anyway, if you folks managed to have a successful chat, feel free to post the log. Otherwise, sorry, guess we’ll try again next Saturday.

Okay, log is finally done and available below the cut.


[21:20] <Froborr> Okay!
[21:20] <Froborr> Starting Kill la Kill.. now!
[21:21] <Froborr> And it’s Godwinned itself.
[21:21] <Froborr> That is an exceedingly large student.
[21:22] <Froborr> Holy crap, I assumed that kid threw a smoke bomb, not TEAR GAS
[21:23] <Froborr> Okay, so the school uniforms give superpowers.
[21:23] <Froborr> That’s… different.
[21:24] <Froborr> Lot of WWII and Animal Farm references so far.
[21:25] <Froborr> And I’ll admit, I do like these titles as the camera pulls out.
[21:26] <Froborr> Is she eating a raw lemon? Including the rind? Ew. I mean, I like lemon, but, ick.
[21:26] <Froborr> Her policy is, apparently, the same as Captain Sheridan’s.
[21:28] <Froborr> Wait, did they KILL the teargas guy and string him u as a warning to others?
[21:29] <Froborr> Wow, mushroom-hair girl is REALLY annoying.
[21:29] <Froborr> Heheh, “elite four.” I wonder what Pokemon types they use.
[21:30] <Froborr> Okay, the half-scissor I remember.
[21:32] <Froborr> I do like that we’re STARTING with an elite mook kicking the hero’s ass.
[21:33] <Froborr> White Tiger. Oh, of course. The “elite four” are the four directional gods.
[21:35] <Froborr> Convenient plot trapdoor.
[21:35] <Froborr> Oh, wait, no, the teacher did it. Interesting.
[21:35] <Froborr> Guess he probably wants to see the student president overthrown, makes sense.
[21:36] <Froborr> Ah. Here’s the part I remember, which caused me to quit watching.
[21:37] <Froborr> Yay. She got superpowers from a rape scene. Lovely.
[21:38] <Froborr> And you’ll be DEAD mushroom-head girl.
[21:38] <Froborr> *sigh* Show, lampshading bad jokes doesn’t automatically make them funny, y’know.
[21:39] <Froborr> That’s a familiar drill.
[21:40] <Froborr> I am almost completely sure those thwomp gloves are not tournament legal.
[21:41] <Froborr> Why doesnt he punch her somewhere that isn’t covered?
[21:42] <Froborr> Okay, the mech activation sequence with the uniform is cute.
[21:43] <Froborr> Hmm, glowing red thread from his uniform was absorbed by hers. Is she going to get more clothed as she wins?
[21:44] <Froborr> Hmm. So far this show is okay, but seems to be rushing. There’re no quiet or calm bits, just noise and action nonstop for 20 minutes.

[21:45] <Froborr> It’s like someone autotuned the pacing, and with the same consequences–an aggressive sort of flattening.
